    There was a mat available that went under my ROHO but it just did not work and was discontinued. It had a green and red light that warned if I bottomed out. I think ROHO made it. Can not remember the name.
    C 5/6 Comp.
    No Tri's or hand function.

    Far better it is to try mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure. Than to take rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much or suffer much, because they live in the grey twilight that knows neither victory or defeat.

    That was ROHO's Merlin proximity sensor.

    Thanks, that was driving me crazy trying to remember. They should probably check out how this mat worked, may help to develop theirs faster.

    Hi guys,

    Quick update if anyone is still checking this thread - we are now testing the device in wheelchairs in the clinic. Looking good so far but still more work to go.

    Check out our latest blog post. It's pretty neat - I put it underneath a ROHO and sat on it for a week to see how it would respond. Here is what happened: http://www.sensimatsystems.com/blog/...lchair-cushion
